    When Planned Parenthood can’t bully its way to what it wants, it can still wish ill upon things that don’t go its way – like the Helms Amendment. In a tweet last week, the group used The Smiths and their song, “Unhappy Birthday,” as a mouthpiece to convey its sentiments toward the Helms Amendment: Since 1973, the Helms Amendment has ensured that abortion stays out of US foreign aid appropriations. The amendment was the first major pro-life victory after Roe v. Wade, setting the tone for pro-life legislative efforts going forward. It ensures that the hard-earned dollars of U.S. taxpayers...

    Last month, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) released a Committee Opinion entitled “Increasing Access to Abortion.” In the opinion, ACOG unequivocally condemns pro-life legislation, contending that pro-life laws are bad for women (emphasis added): Legislative restrictions fundamentally interfere with the patient-provider relationship and decrease access to abortion for all women… The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists calls for advocacy to oppose and overturn restrictions, improve access, and mainstream abortion as an integral component of women’s health care. However, as an “integral component of women’s health care,” we have seen abortion do nothing to improve women’s health....

    Planned Parenthood and the abortion lobby have long rallied for U.S. Peace Corps members to have abortion coverage footed by federal tax funding. According to The Hill, efforts by Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) have granted their wish through the Appropriations bill: Though it was best known for preventing a government shutdown, the Appropriations bill also contained provisions that will ensure for the first time that Peace Corps volunteers have access to abortion in cases of rape, incest, or to protect the life of the woman. Planned Parenthood has also lavished Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) with kudos for his...

    The North Carolina Attorney General will appeal a federal appeals court’s ruling striking down a North Carolina law allowing women a chance to see an ultrasound of their unborn child before an abortion is done. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit struck down a North Carolina law requiring a 24-hour waiting period and informed consent of a woman before an abortion is performed. In January 2013, a district court imposed a temporary injunction on the law, claiming that its mandated disclosures about abortion are an unconstitutional imposition of “the state’s philosophic and social position discouraging abortion,” rather...

Case in point: An article Samantha Lachman at the Huffington Post wrote on Monday about the Federal appeals court declaring a North Carolina law requiring abortion providers to show a woman the ultrasound and describing the images in detail before going through an abortion as unconstitutional. The Huffington Post decided to quote only abortion advocates like Planned Parenthood and The Center for Reproductive Rights. From the Huffington Post:...

    It stands to reason that if abortion is viewed as morally and legally correct, other immoral acts will become socially acceptable as well. Now, according to a judge in Australia, incest is one of those acts. During the trial of a brother charged with raping his younger sister, Judge Garry Neilson said that incest may no longer be morally unacceptable because the only reason it is criminal is due to the potential for abnormalities in any conceived children. Neilson said that thanks to contraception and abortion, there is no longer that risk. The man on trial had raped his sister...

She identifies herself as “pro-abortion.” So what exactly is this “sacrament” that is done out of “love”? A while ago I interviewed Catherine Anthony Adair, a...

    The Christian Right continued to strengthen its grasp on the Republican party in 2014, as was evident in the mid-term election results across the country. And while we can all hope that 2015 will be different, it’s sadly highly unlikely. Looking at the GOP candidates who might throw their hats into the 2016 presidential contest, it’s not hard to see the ties to the Religious Right. “There’s former Gov. Mike Huckabee, of course,” wrote Ed Kilgore on Talking Points Memo, “a Southern Baptist minister whose 2008 campaign almost entirely relied on conservative evangelical voters … Rick Santorum, is a Catholic...

Mary entered the abortion facility around 9:15 a.m., with pairs of white and red roses with attached pregnancy support hot-line cards. She had pro-life counselling pamphlets available to give to the women who were scheduled for abortions that hour. It did not take very long for the police to arrive, three cruisers within 35 minutes. Mary was arrested and handcuffed around 10:00 a.m. Several supporters were outside on the sidewalk, praying and distributing pro-life pamphlets to the general public.

    Christmastime has something that enlarges the heart of everyone--even, I suspect, the grinchiest of atheists. Whether it is lightly falling snow, or visiting family and friends, or Christmas carolling, or an audience surging to its feet at the crescendos of Handel’s Hallelujah chorus, there is something about this time of year that seems to put people in better spirits. No matter how far militant secularism has spread, the Christmas story has incredible cultural power. I find that the Christmas story has much to remind those of us in the pro-life movement, things that might be easier to forget throughout the...

Knox heads up the largest faith-based pro-abortion organization in the nation, the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC). Churches like the United Methodists, Evangelical Lutheran, Presbyterian USA, and Episcopals, as well as a host of more well-known liberal churches are the composite of this campaign for death in the name of the One who came to bring us life. The RCRC is a shame to the reality of Christianity as it manipulates the truth of...

    A University of Victoria abortion debate was interrupted by pro-abortion hecklers who did not feel that abortion “was up for discussion.” As a result, they crowded into the back of an auditorium where pro-life Stephanie Gray was engaged in peaceful debate with UVic professor Eike-Henner Kluge, who took the pro-abortion position. The debate was sponsored by Youth Protecting Youth (YPY), which is UVic’s pro-life student group. The hecklers received a surprising rebuttal from an immigrant whose stance on abortion wasn’t even mentioned. For her, the fundamental right to free speech was threatened by the pro-abortion heckler’s refusal to let Gray...

    When most people think of eugenics, they think of the unspeakable acts of Adolf Hitler and Dr. Josef Mengele. But history tells us that some of America’s best and brightest promoted eugenics as settled science and necessary for the preservation of society. Within 100 years, our deep thinkers went from declaring that in our new country “all men are created equal” to espousing the idea that “some animals men are more equal than others.”1 Eugenics was popularized in the in the United States in the 1890s. High school and college textbooks from the 1920s through the 1940s often had chapters...

    (LiveActionNews) — A common narrative in our society is that, by opposing abortion and infanticide, Christians are conducting a “war on women.” However, in a fascinating study entitled “The Rise of Christianity,” published by Princeton University Press, sociologist Rodney Stark argues that the phenomenal growth of “the obscure, marginal Jesus movement” was due in large part to women. Stark argues that early Christianity was “especially attractive to women” because “within the Christian subculture women enjoyed far higher status than did women in the Greco-Roman world at large.”Furthermore, Stark argues that the Christian opposition to abortion and infanticide was one of...

    A North Carolina law requiring abortion providers to not only conduct an ultrasound but describe its content in detail to women seeking an abortion — whether or not they have asked for or want to receive an ultrasound — was blocked on Monday, December 22, by the Fourth Circuit court of appeals.

On my website Clinicquotes I have a collection of quotes from pro-choicers that show a stunning lack of logic or an almost delusional set of opinions. Here are ten statements made by pro-choicers that might make you shake your head: “The majority of women who abort do so because they know that the unwelcome child, born of constraint or misfortune, will be wounded in some unacceptable way. As Artemis [Greek goddess of hunting] might kill a wounded animal rather than allow it to limp along...

    Women’s health agencies and their supporters, including Gov. Maggie Hassan, are bracing for yet another attempt to strip state funding for Planned Parenthood and other groups that perform abortions. Rep. Warren Groen, a Republican from Rochester, plans to introduce a bill that would “ban public funding going to any organization or group that does abortions or refers for abortions.” Groen filed a legislative service request for a bill “prohibiting the use of public funds for abortion services,” and he said it’s currently being drafted. Groen said he has a long history of opposing abortion and has assisted crisis pregnancy centers....

    Family doctors who object to referring patients for abortions should think about switching specialties, the man overseeing the Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons’ revision of its ethics policy said this week. Dr. Marc Gabel, a Toronto psychotherapist and past president of the college, told LifeSiteNews on Thursday that if his committee’s proposed revision of the college’s “Professional Obligations and Human Rights” is adopted, then if doctors refuse to refer patients to abortionists, or to doctors willing to prescribe contraceptives, they could face disciplinary action. “If there were a complaint, every complaint is investigated by the complaint committee,” Dr. Gabel...

    The topless “Femen” activist who desecrated the Parisian church of the Madeleine days before Christmas last year was given a one-month suspended prison sentence for “sexual exhibitionism” on Wednesday by a penal tribunal in Paris. Eloise Bouton, 31, made the headlines on December 20, 2013, when she burst into the choir of the church half-naked, shouting “Christmas is cancelled,” bearing the same inscription on her back and the words “344e salope” (344th b****) on her chest. These words refer to a famous manifesto published in 1971 by 343 women, mostly intellectuals, actresses and political activists, in the left-wing magazine Nouvel...

    The long struggle to keep abortion out of the south African country of Mozambique has failed. President Armando Guebuza on Thursday "quietly signed into law," in the words of Agence France-Presse, a revision to the penal code that legalizes abortion-on-demand in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, or up to 16 weeks in the case of rape. Mozambique’s Parliament, just as quietly, approved the legislation to legalize abortion in July. The provision allowing abortion if a pregnancy threatens the life or health of the mother, and if a fetal abnormality is diagnosed, is also maintained. Policymakers within the Mozambique Health...

    A video highlighting a North Carolina Planned Parenthood founder fails to mention that she founded the center with help from a man connected to eugenics. It begins, “Planned Parenthood Health Systems of Charlotte began in 1969 when Sarah Bryant saw an unmet need.” Now an old woman, Ms. Bryant says that she started the Planned Parenthood center at the urging of well known eugenicist Wallace Kuralt and other business leaders. “then Mr. Art Jones who was a banker and Mr. Wallace Kuralt who was the chairman, head of the county health commission, urged me to start Planned Parenthood. They had...

    From pro-choice author Melody Rose: The images and language most often wielded by pro-life advocates are vivid and emotional… recent developments in imaging technique certainly have facilitated a reliance on powerful pictures that humanize the fetus in a way not possible two decades ago. Because fetuses now can be seen in intricate detail, opponents of abortion have striking images to use in support of abortion restrictions, despite what these restrictions might mean to women’s health and freedom.” — Melody Rose, Safe, Legal and Unavailable?

    An article in the book The Abortion Controversy has a disturbing quote by a pro-choice activist: In 1989, the Miami Herald ran a story about a local abortion clinic whose conditions were so heinous that one woman died and another was maimed. Abortion proponents admitted that they had known about the clinic conditions but had remained silent for political reasons. According to pro-choice advocate Janis Compton–Carr: “In my gut, I am completely aghast at what goes on at that place. But I staunchly oppose anything that would correct this situation in law.” — Misty Mealey “Abortion Is a Social Failure”...

    A video entitled “Abortion Clinic” shows young people walking through what looks like an abandoned building. If you are to believe the title – it is discovered to be an abortion clinic although they do not state the location or the name. After rummaging around for a while- the group notices something on the floor of the “clinic.” “Oh my God, its a pentagram,” they yell as the flee the site. As you watch the video below remember that it has not been validated as accurate nor the location as an abandoned abortion clinic. VIDEO/PICTURES ON LINK

    In March 1983, OB-GYN and former abortionist Dr. Bernard Nathanson sat down with Canada’s notorious abortionist Henry Morgentaler who helped overturn Canada’s abortion law, to discuss complex issues surrounding abortion on CHCH’s television program “Cherington”. In a clip of the show posted below, Morgentaler who died recently shatters the pro-“choice” perception that women do not regret their abortions. Morgentaler tells Nathanson, “I’ll make a confession to you, when I was a medical student in Montreal, I had one girl already which was two years old, and my wife got pregnant while I was a medical student, a poor medical student,...

    Planned Parenthood has uploaded yet another video showing Blacks using their services. Specifically abortion and birth control. As a reminder, I recently posted blogs on other videos by Planned Parenthood which negatively portrayed Blacks here and here. The Planned Parenthood of New York City video show various couples who did not properly use their birth control. The message the eugenics founded organization sends is that men need to “Be There” so their sexual partners take their birth control and don’t end up pregnant, “Her health is your health – our health” the video says. he drama begins when one of...

    A common narrative in our society is that, by opposing abortion and infanticide, Christians are conducting a “war on women.” However, in a fascinating study entitled “The Rise of Christianity,” published by Princeton University Press, sociologist Rodney Stark argues that the phenomenal growth of “the obscure, marginal Jesus movement” was due in large part to women. Stark argues that early Christianity was “especially attractive to women” because “within the Christian subculture women enjoyed far higher status than did women in the Greco-Roman world at large.” Furthermore, Stark argues that the Christian opposition to abortion and infanticide was one of the...

    Barack and Michelle Obama, speaking to People Magazine, of all disappointments, shared the disheartening news that they have experienced what they called racism. Barack, for example, apparently has had trouble, before he was president, hailing a cab in Chicago, to which an immediate thought might occur to anyone who has been to Chicago: Who hasn't? Also, Barack, at a black-tie event, when he, too, was in festive livery, apparently was asked by another guest if he would get them a cup of coffee. For her recollection, Michelle came up with a visit to a Target store as first lady. She...
